Lone Star Opry Lineup
The Lone Star Opry, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Giddings, presents a great list of perfomers for the February 4 program, including Country & Gospel Recording Artist Jerry Bennett, Moses Rangel, Sally Carlson, Dexter Rowe and Kadie Lynn, all backed up by the outstanding Lone Star Opry Band.
Jerry Bennett is the recipient of four 2012 fame awards, including Entertainer of the Year, Gospel Artist of the Year, Keyborad Player of the Year, and Showman of the Year. He has followed such legends as Merle Haggard, Elvis, and Roy Acuff, receiving the Showman of the Year Award. Jerry has had many national chart successes in Gospel music, including “Oil and The Wine” and “Sing the Glory Down”. He brings a message of hope and encouragement to uplift the downhearted.
Moses Rangel entered the music business by chance, but since then ventured into the business as a solo act. After making a trip to Nashville and visiting studios back in the late 1990’s, he performed at the Broken Spoke, Barbara’s, and the Nashville Palace. His single, Texas Highway, slowly went to #1 on the Nashville Tracker Charts. After a long needed rest, in 2009 Moses began to write new songs for an upcoming record and is working on a new album.
Dexter Rowe is a 4th generation fiddle and guitar player, singer and songwriter. His paw paw gave him his first fiddle at age 9. Since then he has mastered playing his intros, kick offs, and lead parts while being the front man of a high energy country show.
Kadie Lynn is a musician from the big state of Texas who, at the age of 2, was already singing. When she was about 4 and a half years old, she sang at her first Opry. She loves to sing Gospel, Country, and play the guitar.
Ken Brothers and Sally Carlson have been playing guitar and singing country and gospel music for a number of years, and have become regular performers of the Lone Star Opry. They will join the regular Lone Star Opry Band to kick off the program on the first Monday in February at 7:30 at the new Giddings High School Cafetorium on Highway 77 North. Admission is $5.00. Assistance with parking is available and the Giddings Lions Club will have burgers, drinks and snacks for sale.
